Modernization is an imperative.

In 2017 and beyond, agencies will be looking to lay a new foundation for their IT operations, providing the flexibility, scalability and security that are needed to support the latest generation of IT services.

Above all, agencies require more agility. They need to close the gap between the emergence of new requirements and the development of new services to meet those requirements. Agility hinges upon having an underlying infrastructure that can support the rapid deployment of compute, storage, and network capacity.

Agility also entails simplicity. Cloud, mobility, big data and other trends are adding to the complexity of the federal IT environment, making it increasingly difficult to secure and manage. As agencies modernize their operations, they need to address this complexity, finding solutions that support new and emerging solutions without compromising on security or performance.

This event will explore technologies and strategies that will shape agency modernization initiatives in the coming years. Federal IT leaders will discuss both promising developments and potential pitfalls that need to be understood and factors into any modernization plan.

Potential topics to be addressed include:

  • The software-defined enterprise
  • The emerging role for hyperconvergence
  • Modernizing the network fabric
  • Virtualization and containerization
  • Micro-segmentation
  • The evolution of cloud computing
  • The commoditization of IT services
